Let Me Go
Lyrics
Everybody told me you were crazy - certified
In your gaze I caught a glimpse of something else - deep inside
A desolation pulling me in closer - hypnotized
I was trapped inside the blackened mystery of your eyes

(chorus)
Don't try to tell me you're a sunny day
When your words sting like acid rain.
You could never hide the bile that's inside your soul,
So please let me go

In a few short weeks we were a nightmare realized,
Every waking moment left me shuddering - terrified.
I was stranded in your sea of venom - left to die
Not a soul for miles in all directions to hear my cries.

CHORUS

Just let me go, you don't need me here - no,no,no
Find someone else to enslave
I've got too much to be living for,
So please let me be on my way.

CHORUS

Please let me go
Just let me go.
